Israeli Christians are caught in the middle. They are Israelis, but not Jews. Most are Arabs, but not Muslims. The government provides major assistance to Catholic and Orthodox schools, but not enough to maintain the high standards principals demand of themselves. Job opportunities are few, housing remains an issue. CNEWA supports the churches’ many outreach efforts, which benefit all Israelis, including facilities for the handicapped and marginalized and programs for the poor.
